recording of Toppleton's Client, by John Kendrick Bangs.
Read by Cathy Barratt.
A pre-eminent legal firm gets far more than it bargained for when it hires the son of its late senior partner, Hopkins Toppleton, Sr., simply to retain the illustrious family name on the company masthead. Knowing Jr. is a loose cannon, their strategy is to pack him off to the UK to head up a European branch of the firm - a branch they have no intention of sending work. The unwitting Hopkins Toppleton, Jr. is, however, determined to make his mark. (Summary by Cathy Barratt)

Well read and a lot of fun. The ending really didn't come as a surprise, but that was fine. The story was so entertaining that I simply didn't care. After Alice in Bluderland, I enjoyed this one most of his works that I've read so far.
